We love our food in Turkey. We believe it is one of
the best and healthiest cuisines of the world.
We offer recreational cookery experiences in a
wonderful setting in Yarbasan Stone Houses.
Being in the heart of very fertile lands and
cultures, our Turkish cuisine became a melting pot
of many traditions. There are endless varieties of
recipes. Bodrum area is very special since we can
get fresh vegetables, fruits and herbs all year
round; making it “the place” for a school of Aegean
Turkish Cuisine which is based mainly on olive oil
main objective is to teach our delicious cuisine to
people who would like gain the knowledge, and in a
very pleasant ambiance and original environment. We
want to welcome those of you who would like to join
us in this enjoyable journey of learning,
experiencing and tasting with like-minded people
from all over the world.
We also warmly welcome non-cooking partners and
friends and offer them a chance to paint, do pottery
or just relax and enjoy the beaches or the poolside.
Our restaurant on site, Erenler Sofrasi, serves
delicious meals every evening and from time to time
we find classical music performances to add to the
finds that Fodor’s travel guide sums it up
“Aegean cuisine is in many ways different from
Turkish food elsewhere in the country. The shared
Turkish and Greek culture of the region's past, the
climate and soil suitable for growing a wide range
of vegetables, and the prevalence of olive trees and
olive-oil production have helped the region develop
a much more varied and probably healthier way of
eating than elsewhere in Turkey. Olive oil replaces
butter and fish replaces meat on most menus. The
class of dishes generally called zeytinyaglı
(literally "with olive oil") mostly comes from this
region; it means vegetables cooked in olive oil,
mostly with tomatoes and onions, and served cold.
Vegetarians will be in heaven.”
She says “This explains very well our cuisine in
this part of our country. I would also add that we
take particular care to use the many herbs and
vegetables that are grow wild, such as the nettles,
mallows, coltsfoot, chicory, mushrooms, wild
asparagus, and from the seashore- wild samphire. We
also add the flavours of the many citrus orchards
around the Bodrum area to some of our dishes, adding
a zest and balance to the olive oil. Most of the
vegetables found in farmers markets are naturally
organic, brought direct from the farmers and village
men and women who rise so early to harvest before
taking up their spot in the marketplace. I take care
to try and use their produce, and would like to
introduce our guests to them.”
